    Hello again!

    When I started doing photography I used natural light all the time, I've gotten away from it because of my old cameras poor performance in low-light situations.

    With the arrival of my new camera, I went without my bounce flash to the hospital to capture a few pictures of a friend's newborn baby girls.

    The light was low, and the babied were a rainbow of colors (red, orange, pink, yellow lol) so I decided to black and white them.

    What do you think?

    #1 My issue with this one is the "up the nose" shot of the baby in the back. :\ I took this shot from many different angles, and all seemed awkward except this one.

    The compositions are the way they are because they are in facebook format. The pictures for my friend are in 4x6/6x4 porportions.

    I think with twins, you should have both in focus but thats a matter of opinion. I like #2 the best. Maybe bump the contrast and I think a wider shot on #1 would have worked.

    #1 If I could have gotten up on a chair to shoot down from above, it would have been nice. However, I was unable to because we were in a small critical care :/ There was this huge window light at the end of the hall (which we happened to be right next to) that I was stealing the light from, however, we couldn't take the babies out into the hall because of policy, so I had to pull there bassinets in the small doorway of the room. lol It was challenging, but the lighting is good I think. :)
